Life without Anorexia
My motto is 'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'
I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.
I have been blogging for 4 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.
I am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.
I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Appreciating what you have - Bad days lead to appreciation of good days
That amazing when feeling when you wake up and feel so much better!!! Like the quote goes, "you don't realise what you have until it's gone" or "The bad days help you appreciate the good days". These are very true because in daily life when you are just feeling normal, you dont have any pain and you function like normal, you don't really appreciate it. You just live... but then suddenly when you begin to get pain or you donät function like normal, then you begin to realise how good it was before. But now when i am feeling mostly better, (the medication is working, though still have slight pain and nausea though it isnt so noticable) i can appreciate actually being able to eat food and enjoy it as well as having energy to do things!!! It feels good to be up on my feet again, not to mention that the sun is shining which makes for an even better day :)
Today my plans are to go to the gym, finally back again, then i need to clean my room and move lots of things out of there as i am going to paint my room and hopefully redecorate within the next few days! Then in the evening i am going to grill with my boyfriend and his friends, but before that have a whole list of things i need to work through :)
I hope you all have a lovely Tuesday :) (It wasn't until now that i realised it was Tuesday. I've been thinking its Sunday all morning, haha)
Yesterday evening i began watching a film with my sister, but after 45 minutes we gave up as it was such an awful film, and instead ended up going to the store to get chocolate and then watched a reality tv series until 1am in the morning. hahaha. I dont like reality tv as i find it superficial and irritating, but i found myself entertained in a weird way. Thogh i wouldnt watch those type of shows on my own... i was mostly there for the snacks and the company!
